Re: [Xen-devel] [edk2] Windows 8 64bit Guest BSOD when using OVMF to boot and *install* from CDROM(when configured with more than 4G memory)

I just git clone ovmf from official edk2 git repo ang git latest qemu 2.3.50. 
But the issue still exists. Besides, I find windows server 2012 has the same 
BSOD issue but windows 8.1 works normally.

CC'ing the xen-devel mailing list, as I have no environment to reproduce
this in. (Plus, you are cloning a git repo that may or may not be
identical to the (semi-)official edk2 git repo.)
